Commiserations with Hanshi Hans Haupt.
Members of Tenshinkan Karate Federation UK have heard of the devastating news of the house fire which has sadly totally destroyed the home of Hanshi Hans Haupt.
While at his holdiday home he received a call to say that " his house was on fire". He returned home immediately, after a six hour long journey, to discover that his house had been completely destroyed.
All Hanshi's personal belongings were gone and he was left only with the clothes that he stood up in. His office, his computers, his furniture - everything - completely gone.
All of his treasured personal possessions relating to karate and family, which he had collected over decades were totally wiped out.
It will take a long time to recover from such terrible incident, and Tenshinkan UK wish to express our hope that Hanshi Hans will soon overcome his devastating loss. Our thoughts are with him at this time.
Kyoshi Robert Kane and all of Tenshinkan KarateFederation U.K. 12th November 2018.
Ossu to All Country Chiefs, Area Chiefs and Sensei in Tenshinkan.
To All Sensei and Black belts in every country in the World.
From KANCHO MIWA and Myself we wish to congratulate Joel Palmqvist on this magnificent achievement.
Congratulations JOEL - We are proud of you.
